Re: HELP! My newborn has me stressed and stumped!

some things to try that weren't already mentioned (it never hurts to keep your mommy toolbox full)

1st - don't assume because you have been able to eat pretty much anything until now, means that you still can - try cutting out the acid foods (tomatoes and cucumbers were and absolute no with #3) and dairy - Dairy was a culprit with all my kidlets.

Second - if you have a yoga ball, try bouncing on that while holding her - it worked WONDERS for my last one - we even kept it in the bedroom. It provides the motion they need and helps keep baby and mom calm while giving you a break

Third - I didn't see that anyone mentioned gripe water, but it is a lifesaver - I loved the stuff.
